You Tube Favourites with Phil Rowley

Phil Rowley's 10th all day fly tying seminar in Red Deer was all about You Tube Favourite Flies. The seminar was close to a sell out on a cold blustery winter day. We can almost count on a snow storm when Phil pulls into town. It has been a great source of winter humour with our gang from the Central Alberta Fly Tying Club!

The weekend started off early. Phil realized that he needed to escape Sherwood Park a day early in order to avoid a nasty snowstorm.We then enjoyed some great visiting with our annual pub night! What a great turn out too!

Saturday morning we all braved the frigid temperatures and loaded up to head to our tying seminar. We owe Garnet Clews and his brother a big thanks for allowing us to use the space at their facility for the seminar. It is a perfect spot and we sure appreciate their kindness!

Phil guided us through several tremendous You Tube Fy Tying Channels. We then tied up a great cross section of flies. The all day seminar is all about learning tying techniques. Phil also introduced the gang to new materials. Synthetic quills are a great new product that is now on the market! 

I have posted all of the flies we tied at the seminar. I have also added several slides from Phil's power point presentation.

I want to thank Phil for adding us onto a very busy show season for him. We all learn a great deal from his fabulous seminars. 

Just one reminder that we do have a tying seminar on Monday February 4th. Wayne McElderry is our guest tyer, see you then. Dress warm and lets have a big turn out!
